My First Day as a Stay-at-Home Dad

Well I’m finally at the end of day one of being a Stay-at-Home dad for the week and I’m already thinking about the fact I have another four of these to go. Suffice to say, there’s a part of me that feels a little bit like this: Spending My First Day as a Stay-at-Home Dad In all honesty though, it wasn’t actually too bad. The couldn’t have gone any easier. Isabelle loved the bath, something I haven’t done with her for a while due to the fact she hated being in there alone. She then got dressed without any problems,…

Isablog #22 – Ups and Downs Again with Depression

As you may already know with this blog, I like to keep things honest. So I’m going to start things off by saying this week started with me struggling.

Overall, it was probably as good as I could’ve hoped it would go. But before I carry on, I will start all of this off by saying I don’t generally like Christmas all that much.

Isablog #19 – The Last One Before Christmas

Well, this time next week, as you’re probably very well aware, it will be Christmas Eve. And as such, I won’t be blogging. I try not to allow this blog to impact on my family time as much as I can; of course, it can’t fully be avoided. If I want to run this blog, which I very much do, I have to find time to write. But doing it on Christmas Eve is where I draw the line.
